Microsoft Reveals August’s Games with Gold

Microsoft has announced next month’s free Games with Gold list, and like last month, it features some solid titles.

If you are still trudging along in the last generation, Gotham City Impostors and BattleBlock Theater are being replaced. First up is Motocross Madness, a solid if not spectacular motorcycle racer. It does feature decent depth and the mechanics work just fine, although no one is likely to be blown away by racing their avatar around the three limited environments. Arkane Studios smash hit Dishonored becomes available the 16th though, and if you haven’t got a chance to play that, it is definitely one of the more interesting games from last generation, and is one of the better titles we’ve seen on Games with Gold.

Although perhaps not as good as last month’s offering, Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, the Xbox One deals of Strike Suit Zero and Crimson Dragon will give you something to play while you wait for the holiday landslide of titles. As usual, Xbox One games can only be played as long as your Xbox Gold account is active, while 360 games can be played regardless of your account info, provided you have a Gold account when you download them.

If you haven’t downloaded the currently available titles, you have until the 1st to do so.
